The assisted living licensure (ALL) implementation date of August 1, 2021, is just around the corner, and the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) started posting the names of facilities who will be regulated under this new licensure on their ALL webpage, view the downable list here

If you don’t see your name on the list, it could be for one of a few reasons: 
  • You still haven’t paid your application fee
  • You haven’t completed setting up your new NetStudy profile and completed background checks on owners and managerial officials
  • You forgot to let MDH know when the background checks were completed
  • MDH is still reviewing your completed background checks on owners and managerial officials

Also, MHD has updated the “Assisted Living Information for Consumers, Families, and Caregivers” webpage that includes the assisted living bill of rights, an FAQ for consumers, and links to other resources. 
MDH will update these resources as more information becomes available. You can find the links to specific resources in the left-hand navigation bar at the top of the page.
